THE kids can rock it out with Ricki-Lee while mum and dad are break­ing it down to Bar­nesy at the Cy­clone Re­lief NQ Con­cert with chil­dren’s tick­ets avail­able for just $ 10.

All pro­ceeds from the seven-hour mu­sic fes­ti­val will go to North Queens­land’s Cy­clone Yasi-af­fected fam­i­lies and with adult gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets $ 75, chil­dren 12 and un­der $ 10 and kids un­der four free it is ex­pected to draw a huge crowd.

All grand­stand tick­ets are $ 100 each. As well as head­line act Jimmy Barnes, Shan­non Noll, Ricki-Lee Coul­ter, Stan Walker, Dragon and Townsville band God­fa­thers of Funk will take to the stage.

The Wil­son fam­ily can’t wait to pack up their pic­nic rug and head to Tony Ire­land Sta­dium for the fam­ily friendly event on April 9.

Mum Tracey said while she and her hus­band Geoff were ea­ger to see Jimmy Barnes and Dragon per­form, her chil­dren Emily, 10, and Sami, seven, were ex­cited about Ricki-Lee and Shan­non Noll.

‘‘ We’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing Dragon es­pe­cially but it will be good to see Bar­nesy too. I haven’t seen him per­form since I was at uni,’’ she said. ‘‘ When Cy­clone Yasi hit here in Townsville, it was scary enough so we re­ally feel for the peo­ple in places like Tully and Card­well.’’
